Complaint - Service Brakes Air

WHEN BRAKING WHILE APPROACHING STOP SIGN HAVING SLOWED TO ~10 MPH, I ENCOUNTERED A BUMPY SECTION OF ROAD. THE BRAKES FEEL LIKE THEY RELEASED FOR ~1 SEC CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO LURCH FORWARD BEFORE THEY (BRAKES) KICKED IN AGAIN. THIS HAS HAPPENED 5-10 TIMES SINCE I BOUGHT THE CAR USED FROM THE TOYOTA DEALER IN 4/2013. MY COMPLAINT MIRRORS THOSE THAT RESULTED IN THE RECALL BELOW BUT MY TOYOTA DEALER SAYS, BASED ON MY VIN THAT MY CAR WAS NOT AFFECTED.
